most of the regular cast of Dirty Dozen: The Series

This short lived Fox series followed the World War II exploits of a group of military prisoners turned soldiers. The soldiers were led by the tough as nails Lt. Danko (Ben Murphy) who assigned each squad member a place based on their abilities. The series was shot in Yugoslavia and was canceled after only seven of thirteen episodes were broadcast. Its cancellation was due primarily to poor ratings which were not helped by the show's being scheduled opposite the CBS's Vietnam War drama Tour of Duty. Some controversy over the cancellation led to a dispute between FOX and the show's production company MGM/UA. FOX paid only for the seven episodes it broadcast and refused to pay for the other episodes already produced.

Aired 1988 on FOX (7 aired episodes).
